Boat With 166 Passengers Sinks In Nigeria With Only Two Survivors

A wooden boat carrying 166 people from Southeastern Nigeria capsized about 40 nautical miles off the coast, with only two known survivors, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said on Tuesday.

The boat left on Friday from the remote town of Oron, in Akwa Ibom state and was heading to Gabon. David Akate, head of NEMA in Cross River, confirmed the incident.

  13. OMG!! This is very tragic.. I am guessing this is same incident that happened a few kilometers around where i am at the moment offshore Douala/Nigeria border close to Bakasi. The boat that capsized here happened 3 days ago and the surfer taking care of the field where i am working recovered about 20 bodies.
    I am pretty sure this is same incident. Any one that can contact a public media should ask Nigerian govt to liase with Camerounian govt on this to confirm it.
    Cheers....

  22. this is incredible, a very said new,so they alldon't no how to swim or what,

    this kind of boat's still carry people in that number from places like brass/okopoma(baylsa state) to Port harcourt.

    a journey that will take people five/six hours using a speed boat, will take some one using local boat a day and half, you can imagine the time different.

    But one thing is that this boat's are cheap, that why so many people use them, some time i blame this on the economy, it say a lot of these guys are business men and women who also transport their good using this method of transportation.

    I think is right time the government look into the safety of these local boat owner and put some kind of regulation on the number of people they are suppose to carry.

    may their souls rest in peace
